The Liverpool player who might solve their offensive problems returns



Liverpool’s midfield problems have been discussed at length on this site and many other sites, but I don’t think the problem ends there. They still have a lot to do in attack, because things are not going well on that side either. They haven’t scored the goals they’re used to and there’s obviously a reason for that.

Injuries played their part. Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota have struggled with their fitness this season. But the form also played a major role. Their new addition, Darwin Nunez, didn’t work out as he expected. At least not yet. And their talisman, Mohamed Salah, is a shadow of himself in the Premier League, things haven’t worked out for them but all hope is not lost.

Diogo Jota

Diogo Jota returned to full squad training on Thursday, just when the team needed him.

Liverpool should change the system to include Jota in the center to help Salah and Nunez

I think a drift from a 4-3-3 would go far in favor of Liverpool. Whether it’s a 4-2-3-1 or a 4-4-2 is a different case, but a change is needed.

I think if Liverpool go for a 4-2-3-1 with Jota as a central attacking midfielder right behind Jota, who sometimes acts as a makeshift striker, it could help Nunez a lot and give the team enough of firepower up front to push their chance to change the door.

Playing Jota would free up more space for Salah and Jota’s skills are exceptional on their own. It would take more coverage from a double pivot from Thiago and possibly Bajcetic, and I think that could work at least in the short term. However, they should definitely give it a try, because whatever they’re currently doing doesn’t quite work either.

Liverpool are reviving long-term interest in Napoli midfielder Piotr Zielinski.
Il Mattino says Liverpool are interested in Zielinski.

The 28-year-old has long been a target for the Reds having opted for Napoli over Anfield in 2016 when he moved from Empoli to Napoli.

Piotr Zielinski

His contract with the Serie A leaders still has 18 months left, but the Italian newspaper says his salary seems “too important” given the salary structure set by the Napoli president. According to the outlet, if a deal cannot be reached in the Italian top flight, his future can only lie in the Premier League and Jurgen Klopp’s side have been mooted.
